I Am

Written in November 1995

I am the darkness you try to hide

The ruthlessness that lies inside

An emotional roller coaster ride

Nothing can stop the pain

The trembling, thundering rain

I am the darkness you try to hide

In those faces, every day, you see

In their eyes, that cry, look inside, that’s me

Nobody thinks or cares to set me free

Some universal addiction to agony

As if they know, their laugh is snide

I am the darkness you try to hide

Like a vampire, my “life” is eternal

Like hell, I’m trapped in an inferno

My keepers seem longing for something maternal

I prefer to remain nocturnal

No matter how hard I try to die

I am the darkness you try to hide.
